Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on. This week for me it's:
Title: The Weight of Stars (Songs of New Asgard #1)
Author: Tessa Gratton
Publisher: Random House Children's Books
First book in a new series which presents an alternate history of the U.S. in which the country was founded on elements of Norse religions, and gods walk among humans, with some maintaining powerful positions in the government. Book one follows two teenagers who embark on a cross-country search for a missing god. As the kids travel through the United States of Asgard they encounter “smalltown zealots, trickster gods, and sadistic field trolls.”
Summary taken from Goodreads
Now, I know there isn't a cover for it yet, and no definitive release date, and only a basic synopsis at the moment, but does that make this any less exciting? I don't think so. If anything, it makes it more so because there's more anticipation. I love the idea of having a superpower's history rewritten, love the idea of it being based on Norse mythology. And, seeing as there is no cover, it was the title that first attracted me. 'The Weight of Stars'. It sounds almost poetic, quite deep and mysterious, calling my name. 2013 hurry up already!
What about you? Does this sound like your kind of read? What are you waiting for this week?
